What is Groundswell aid?

A platform that will engage the Global CS Mission, donors, compassionate individuals, and the broader surfing community in social justice, community development, and aid work in Surfing communities around the world.


How Will It Change the World?

Creation of a web-based platform that will highlight and bring visibility to existing community development and social justice projects happening around the world and enable interested individuals to support them in their needs. This includes:

  • Financially via donations, fundraisers, and engagement with high level donors
  • Practically via service/volunteer opportunities and short term aid trips that will activate an army of volunteers willing to give their time to practically serve these initiatives with a goal to achieve a sustainable benefit to the projects

Why do we do this?

To empower and catalyse existing community development projects around the world, many which are already happening within the global CS Mission, while bringing real life change to every surfer in every surfing community through practical action.

what are the gospel benefits?

Groundswell Aid will compliment Christian Surfer’s vision that every surfer in every surfing community would have an opportunity to know and follow Jesus in the following ways:

  • Creation of broader on ramps into the Christian Surfers mission (reach beyond existing CS network)
  • Engagement in practical missional action and opportunities to be the hands of feet of
  • Jesus to the surfing world (James 2, Isaiah 58)
  • Maximization of technology to share resources and further God’s Kingdom
  • Discipleship and service opportunities to initiatives and those who are supporting them
